Reviewer: slugs and urchins - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 8, 2010
Subject: almost noir
this was one good western and I am not a fan of westerns but there's an actual plot and the main characters are excellent actors, Wills does the best I've ever seen him do and he has more talent than I knew.

The Big Bend area is spectacular once the Summer and Fall is over but probably hell when it's hot. The skies in this movie are Winter skies.

The only disappointment for me was the parts of the film shot at night. They're almost black in this print so any nuances are lost, otherwise it's great!
